Quick Start

With pre-installed OpenWRT system, you can directly use LinkStar once you received the package.


  • LinkStar-H68K-V2
  • Network cable x2
  • Support CC line PD fast charging power adaptor


  • Step 1. ETH0 is the WAN port and the other network ports are LAN ports. If you want to manage LinkStar-V2's OpenWRT via a network cable, then connect the network cable to a LAN port other than ETH0.
  • Step 2. Power it up by plugging CC line PD fast charging power adaptor

Step 3. Manage the OpenWRT backend

Use a network cable to connect to the ETH1/ETH2/ETH3 network port of the LinkStar-V2. Then enter the address: into your browser to access the admin backend.

The initial account and password for the system are as follows.
